The devil inside you

I’m talking about that feeling that grates on everyone who has it.

There is nobody who possibly can find this a ‘welcome’ feeling. In fact, I’m apt to say that the majority of people who have to go through this mental pain would much rather it didn’t exist. Because it can potentially ruin a human being from pillar to post. All without showing. It’s like an invisible disease. Like someone has planted sort of a ‘virus’ in your brain that doesn’t go away anytime soon.

For some reason, children don’t seem to suffer from this way of thinking.

As such, it’s an ‘adult disease’.

The delinquent that can be potentially deadly is also known as stress.

Yes, I’m sure you’re familiar with it.

In fact, one older guy once told me something so mortifyingly dumb, I couldn’t possibly wrap my head around that kind of thought pattern.

We were discussing all the bad things in our society. Climate change, terrorism, the high taxes and so on. All bad stuff. All the negative things. I attempted to steer the conversation in a more positive way and urged everyone to think positive thoughts.

However, the old man wouldn’t have it.

In fact, he didn’t agree with me at all.

What he concluded with, his final argument was that ‘As soon as one concern is out of the world, you need to find a new one to worry about.’

I couldn’t seriously believe my own ears.

Because, the tone and demeanour was totally serious. He really meant what he said. It was no sarcastic comment. No joke. He really believed that life was all about worrying over different kinds of things. Instead of trying to fix them so that you could have one less thing to worry about.

Safe to say, I just shook my head.

Because, stress is the ultimate killer. I’m sure you know what I mean.

In addition to having chronic pain in their bodies, people struggle with stress also. It feels like their bodies are working overtime. Like the heart has to pound at double the rate to be able to supply the body with enough energy so that it can worry about all the small things.

Once again, I may be a pessimist, but I’ve never ever heard something so mortifyingly stupid in my life.

Seeking out problems to worry about.

In all seriousness.

The poor souls who suffer from chronic pain know that if there’s one thing they’d want less of — it’s stress. It’s bad enough that their necks, backs and hips feel like they’re on fire all the time. Now all of a sudden they’re supposed to deal with stress also.

Fortunately, there may be a way out.

However, know that you’ll likely have to wait for quite some time before it works. And depending on other factors such as your age, your body composition, your lifestyle and so on, it may work differently than what you’d expect it to.

However, it doesn’t come with a prescription.

Nor with any known side effects.

So, if you’re ready to begin the long way to a healthy life void of stress and pain, then CBD oil is what you need.

Or are you that in love with your pain and stress that you don’t even want to give it a shot?

You’re the boss of your own life — you decide.
